Matteo Darmian sends message to Man United fans about Liverpool
Matteo Darmian warns his Manchester United team-mates that the Red Devils must beat Swansea to keep the pressure up on Liverpool
Matteo Darmian has warned his Manchester United team-mates that the Red Devils must beat Swansea on Sunday to keep up the pressure on Liverpool.
Manchester United head into this weekend’s Premier League fixtures in fifth place in the Premier League table after their goalless draw with Manchester City in midweek.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are aiming to bounce back to winning ways at Watford on Monday night after the disappointment of their 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace last weekend.
Manchester United will finish above Liverpool if they win their remaining games in the Premier League.
And Red Devils defender Darmian has stressed the importance of Manchester United getting a positive result against Swansea City on Sunday to keep the pressure on both Liverpool and Manchester City.
Darmian told MUTV: “It’s our objective to finish in the top four. We are there, five games to go, we have to win and put pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool.”
He continued: “We haven’t got too much time for recovery and to prepare for the game but, from now until the end of the season, we play every few days, so we have to be ready. Every one is important so we have to be focused, play on Sunday and win.”
Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season under Louis van Gaal before Mourinho was drafted in as the Dutchman’s replacement last May.
